A letter from your 2020 Golf Cart Fundraiser Committee: 

Hello ODSC, we hope this finds you and your family doing well.  

Monica Palmieri, Lori Setzer, John Setzer, and Jim Palmieri are extremely pleased to report that we have sold all of our tickets for the 3rd year in a row.  That is correct; in 2018 we sold 3,000 tickets.  In 2019 we sold 3,200.  In 2020, despite having all of our scheduled events cancelled, all 3,500 tickets have been sold.  That’s a total of $17,500 deposited for 2020.  And, if you are keeping score, that’s $48,500 for three years.

A great big thank you to Monica Powell.  Without her incredible communication, this would not have been possible.  Thank you to our President, Billy Powell, for all of his support.  This year we had to create our own events and Billy showed up at every single event.  We really appreciated his support.  Thank you to all of our volunteers who gave up their time to help sell tickets.  

On the day of the drawing, with 500 tickets still to sell, we started selling at Grahams’s at 10:00am and then moved to Fat Harold’s parking lot at 3:00pm.  At 5:30pm, as members were arriving for the drawing, many members who had volunteered in the past 3 years, got caught up in the selling frenzy as we closed in on ticket #3,500 and they started selling tickets with us.  Finally, thank you to all of our members who showed up in droves on September 26th to purchase tickets and stayed for the drawing.

Congratulations to our 2020 golf cart winner Felix Figueroa.  Felix is a member of the ODSC and purchased ticket #0800 way back in February.

Once again, thank you to everyone.

Golf Cart Fundraiser Update

The Golf Cart Raffle Committee set up shop outside of Graham’s Golf Carts on June 26 and 27.  To say it was hot would be an understatement.  We would like to thank our volunteers who braved the heat – Joe Harrell, Nancy & Tom Wegman, Dolly McDermott, Jerry Howard, and Monica & Billy Powell.  (Also, thank you Monica for the communication) Special thanks to Mike Graham for supporting us once again and Rip Tide Radio for the great advertisements. Please support them.

Over the weekend we sold 250 tickets.  We began the year with 3,500 tickets. Despite having all of our events cancelled, we have less than 1,300 remaining. We still have a few more events up our sleeves but not enough to reach the finish line in a blaze of glory.

We really need your help.  As a reminder, if you would like to purchase or sell blocks of tickets (five, ten or more)  contact Monica Palmieri at monicapalmieri@me.com.  You may also purchase tickets anytime at Graham’s.  Just ask Mike for OD Shag Club Golf Cart tickets.  He has the cart and sign in his store, and is helping us sell tickets.  We can’t thank him enough for the support.  The drawing is still Sept. 26.  If you are on a Committee, we would appreciate you turning in your money ASAP.
 
Thank You,
Golf Cart Committee

Message from Your Golf Cart Fundraiser Committee

Lori & John Setzer

 

As you know, all of our selling events this year have been cancelled. We lost St. Patricks’ Day, SOS, SOS Parade, and MayFest, not to mention some smaller events.  This Covid Virus really has a way of trickling down, and we saw it firsthand.  Last year at this time, we were completely sold out.  With restrictions loosening up, we thought we may have a selling opportunity at Graham’s Golf Cart store on Memorial Day weekend.  This is like ‘fishing where the fish are’ because we know everyone that walks by, loves to drive golf carts around town. 
 
A big shout out to Mike Graham for allowing us to set up our booth in front of his store on Friday and Saturday.  Also thank you to Rip-Tide Radio for giving us on-air mentions both days, they did a great job.  As always, thank you Monica Powell for the terrific communication. Thank you to our members, Maxie Brien, Dolly McDermott, Kay and Mark Hughes and our new member Tim Pittman, who volunteered their time to sell tickets.  Thank you to all our club members who stopped by to purchase tickets.
 
Okay, so you want to know the results?  Our two-day event ranked 2nd to our largest event ever (St. Patrick’s Day Festival last year). WE SOLD ALMOST 600 TICKETS! 

All that being said, we are still far behind our sales goal.  
 
We have 1,700 tickets left to sell, so we’re always looking for selling opportunities. If anyone would like a block of 10 or more tickets to sell to friends and neighbors, please let Monica Palmieri know by clicking on this link monicapalmieri@me.com. While we did not have the large crowds like the above events, our hit-rate made a hot couple of days well worth our time.

Once again, a great big  ‘THANK YOU’ to all who came out.

20200130 Fund Raiser Golf Cart

2020 Golf Cart Fundraiser 

by

Jim Palmier

In 2018 we had 3,000 tickets available for sale – Sold Out

In 2019 we had 3,200 tickets available for sale – Sold Out

The 2020 fundraiser is underway.  This year we will have 3,500 tickets available for sale. The big news for 2020; we will be offering a gas-powered engine as opposed to electric.  You spoke, we listened.  Many people stated that their complex did not allow electric carts.  The retail value of the cart this year is over $6,000.  Remember, if you do not want the cart, people are lined up to buy it.

We kicked things off at Winter SOS.  A big thank you to Lulu for allowing us to sell tickets at Fat Harold’s where we sold over a hundred tickets.  Our next event was the Winter Brunch. Lori Setzer’s world famous carrot and hummingbird cakes were raffled off to those who purchased $20 worth of tickets.  During the brunch we sold 87 tickets.  YTD, we have sold a total of 288 tickets.

Our next event will be the Oyster Roast.  Look for another tasty treat offering.

This fundraiser helps pay for all of our brunches/parties etc.

Please support those businesses that support us.

Thank you,

The Golf Cart Fundraiser Committee

You can stick a fork in the 2019 version of the Golf Cart Fundraiser, because it is done.  It was a record-breaking year.  We have never tried to sell 3,200 tickets, we have never sold 3,200 tickets, and they were all sold by the end of SOS Parade Day way back in April.

Once again, a great big thank you to our volunteers who gave their time to support the Club, McMillan’s for the use of their parking lot, and Lulu at Fat Harold’s for inviting us indoors to sell tickets during Winter SOS.  Also, many thanks to Mike Graham at Graham’s Golf Cars for selling tickets and storing the cart all year.  Please support businesses that support us.

The drawing was held on Saturday 9/21/2019 at Fat Harold’s parking lot. The drawing was held on a Saturday for the first time and we had a great turn out. We have never seen so many fingers and toes crossed.  And the winner was, Joanne Natt of North Myrtle Beach.  Needless to say, she was extremely excited as were her ODSC friends.

Lesson learned; buy your tickets early in 2020!

Hello to our valued volunteers,

A BIG THANK YOU!!!!!

No, we are not contacting you to ask you to volunteer again. We are contacting you to say, that because of your incredible efforts, we have sold all of our tickets for 2019!  Yes, even though the Board increased the amount of tickets to 3,200, you did it!  From Mid-Winter SOS, St.Patty’s Day, and Spring SOS, you were all terrific. We will be depositing over $16,000 for the Club (including some small contributions.)  We know you would have rather enjoyed more time watching parades or enjoying SOS, and we know that selling, took some of you out of your comfort zone.  This makes all of you even more special.  While at times it is not easy getting people to volunteer, many of you volunteered for more than one shift and more than one event, and we sure appreciated it.  

Some of you volunteered as a group so we’re missing their email address.  Please forward this email to them. 

Enjoy your summer, especially knowing you will not be receiving any more emails from us!

Take care, and again… THANK YOU!

The Golf Cart Committee would like to openly acknowledge the following people who sold tickets at the St. Partrick’s Day Parade and Festival. The day began at 6:15am to set up and decorate the booth. The day ended at 5:00pm. Despite battling the chilly temperatures, a steady wind, and an overdose of pollen, our volunteers helped sell over 750 tickets for the day. By far, the largest single day ticket sales we have had. It was an incredible group effort. We would like to thank the following people who gave their all and put us way ahead of our YTD sales goal.

20190216 Oyster Roast Golf Cart Fundraiser

Oyster Roast Golf Cart Fundraiser

by

Monica and Jim Palmieri

The 2019 Golf Cart Fundraiser is off and running.  In 2018, we were given 3,000 tickets to sell.  Even though it has never been done before, (NBDB) we sold out.  This was a combined effort of all of our great volunteers.  It was a super effort, even though we lost 2 days of Spring SOS due to storms and all of Fall SOS due to a hurricane.  But enough of 2018.  This year, the Board has decided to increase the number of tickets to 3,200.  Because we were able to get the cart and the tickets earlier this year, we have already sold 372 tickets.  A huge event for us this year was the brunch.  With the purchase of 4 tickets, you were entered to win a world-famous carrot cake baked by Lori Setzer.  We had 27 entries. Because of the success of this event, we are doubling down at this year’s Oyster Roast.  If you buy 4 golf cart tickets, you will be entered to win one of two cakes; a carrot cake or a strawberry cake.

Remember, the Golf Cart Fundraiser helps pay for all of our events (Brunches, Oyster Roast, Christmas Dinner etc.).  So please stop and see us at the Roast, buy 4 tickets, and be entered to win one of the cakes.  If you can’t make the roast, we will be selling tickets at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.  If every member would buy just one ticket, we would be 25% sold. 

Finally, we hear all the time that “I don’t need a golf cart”. Please know that we have people lined up to buy it from you. It is a fully loaded cart with a retail value of $5,500.

 Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Monica and Jim Palmieri
